I'm Riding For
Caleb Vander Ven
Caleb was diagnosed with a brain tumor when be was 9. He had been sick for a year and they kept taking him to doctors. Finally, they took him to the right doctor, one who listened to all of the symptoms. He did blood work an then an MRI. They received a call saying that Caleb had a tumor on his optic nerve. St. Jude's Research Hospital took Caleb's case. When he was 10, they removed the tumor and his entire pituitary gland. Caleb has no hormonal function at all due to the removal. Caleb continues to get treatment from Dr. Paul Klimo in Memphis, TN and from Dr. Brianna Patterson at Aflac Cancer in the cancer survivor program. This is something that will be with him forever. Caleb currently suffers with Diabetes Insipidus. No growth hormone. No adrenal function. No thyroid function. No testosterone and stomach disease due to his illness. But, he is tough and continues to amaze everyone with his ability to look on the bright side of things.
This will be my 8th year that I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!
Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.
Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.
So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
Your support will change little lives.
